The best convertible Chromebook
Before Google rolled out the Pixelbook, and showed us exactly what the best Chromebooks should be, the Asus Chromebook Flip was the Google laptop many Google laptops aspire to be. With a full Intel Core processor and a full-HD display, the Asus Chromebook Flip was a game-changer. Put simply, if you want key features that the Pixelbook offers, but you cannot afford its premium price, the Asus Chromebook Flip is the next best thing. If you’re on a budget, this is one of the best Asus laptops to consider.Read the full review: Asus Chromebook Flip 

A brilliant Chromebook for productivity
When Android apps first became available to the best Chromebooks, it was only a matter of time before Samsung threw its hat into the ring, designing a Chromebook that’s as beautiful as it is powerful. With a 12.3-inch QHD touchscreen and a 360-degree hinge, the Samsung Chromebook Pro also has a built-in stylus, the first of its kind to show up in a Chromebook. This device gives many of its competitors a run for their money – that includes most Android devices – even if the keyboard could use some tightening up. Read the full review: Samsung Chromebook Pro

Another great 2-in-1 Chromebook
The best Chromebooks are affordable devices that are accessible to anyone, no matter the budget. And, in that spirit, the Dell Inspiron Chromebook 11 2-in-1 perfectly fits the bill. This isn’t the most powerful Chromebook on the market, obviously. However, it boils Chromebooks down to what they need to be: affordable, easy to use and durable. This rugged Chromebook is great for doing all your web browsing, paper writing and show binging needs, and may just be one of the best laptops for kids, as it won’t break from a simple drop.Read the full review: Dell Inspiron Chromebook 11 2-in-1

Acer has made one of the best Chromebooks ever with the Chromebook Spin 11
The best Chromebooks make the most compelling student laptops, and that’s exactly where the Acer Chromebook Spin 11 excels. Whether you’re a student or a parent of one, this is a cheap, capable and durable laptop that will let you get some schoolwork done while commuting or traveling. You might not get any hardcore gaming or proper video editing done on it. However, if you only need to write up some papers and stream videos or shows in your downtime, then the Acer Chromebook Spin 11 should be at the top of your list.Read the full review: Acer Chromebook Spin 11 

Another brilliant Chromebook from Acer
With a solid build quality that rivals a MacBook, it’s easy to excuse the Acer Chromebook 15’s aversion to 2-in-1 form factors. Still, given that the best Chromebooks rolling out this year are fully convertible, thanks to the wide adoption of Android app support, the Acer Chromebook 15 had to prove itself with more than great style. Beyond its aptitude for laying flat using a 180-degree hinge, this beautiful 15-inch Chromebook also makes a great impression with its battery life, lasting nearly 17 hours in our battery test.Read the full review: Acer Chromebook 15

Acer Chromebook R11 has a 360-degree hinge
We wouldn’t be surprised to see Acer replacing the Chromebook R11 someday soon – at least, judging by the recent release of the Chromebook Spin 11, and owing to the fact that it isn’t the most powerful choice out there. Yet it still holds up to this day as among the best Chromebooks on the market, giving you full access to Android Apps on the Google Play store. What’s more, it does so on a touchscreen display that can be rotated around into tablet mode, fitted in an all-metal finish that you would be proud to show off. Read the full review: Acer Chromebook R11

A brilliant value Chromebook from HP
The best Chromebooks balance a bargain price and efficient use of Chrome OS – and the HP Chromebook 14 is the perfect example of that. While it’s similar to the Acer Chromebook 15 in a lot of ways, this 14-inch Chromebook is a tad more compact and looks slightly better. Complemented by a bright blue finish and a screen made to astound, the HP Chromebook 14 offers the best value of any Chromebook out there. Even if the battery life and performance are average – the HP Chromebook 14 is easily one of the best Chromebooks to date.Read the full review: HP Chromebook 14

The Acer Chromebook Spin 15 is the ultimate Chromebook for multitasking
We can easily forgive the Acer Chromebook Spin 15’s shortcomings – namely, its subpar trackpad and the fact that doesn’t take full advantage of the space it has – as it more than makes up for them with enough power for formidable multitasking, a battery life that will outlast yours and a beautiful touch display that’s surprisingly premium for the price. All those certainly warrant this Chromebook a spot in our best Chromebooks list, and that’s without even factoring in its affordability. If you’re not convinced that you should jump on the Chromebook bandwagon, this one will make a convert out of you.Read the full review: Acer Chromebook Spin 15Juan Martinez, Michelle Rae Uy and Gabe Carey have also contributed to this article.Images Credit: TechRadar
